"Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology"


When a school goes green, children benefit—as well as the environment! Green schools lead to:
Improved student performance. When children learn in classrooms with natural daylight, improved sound quality and non-toxic building materials such as non-VOC carpets and paints, test scores can improve as much as 20%. Attendance also improves!
More funds for student resources. When green upgrades are made to a school, water and energy costs can be reduced by as much as 40%. These savings can be channeled back into resources that directly benefit students, such as textbooks, computers and other essentials.
Reduced carbon footprint. Greening a school significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming.


Every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, comfortable and free of harmful toxins. Unfortunately, many schools across the country lack the funds to carry out much-needed repairs and renovations—subjecting children to outdated facilities with improper ventilation, poor lighting and inefficient energy usage. Global Green USA is working to address this situation and ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn in a healthy, green school.
You can help by nominating a school in your area for a Green School Makeover—read on to learn more, and find out how you can green your school!!

why this competition is important to me
 green isn't just a growing trend; 
 involves a lifestyle change that requires
 an awareness of how you live, eat and
 shop. The common phrase of "Think 
globally, act locally" is the best
 description of how to adopt a "green" or 
eco-friendly school lifestyle, because 
adopting practices like recycling and 
reducing your energy consumption will
 benefit both you and Mother Earth. every
 school needs to do this so we can have
 better life :) i teach my kids and i hope 
they do this when they grow :)
